 Hi Niall
Thanks for that. I will inform the infrastructure team. They asked for thatinformation but I was forwarded an email from Microsoft support, who haveobviously traced the route, and the problem is with the proxy server.

For what it's worth em12c uses 128bit SSL. The encryption methods are also available to them if they are that interested. I expect the cert error is just the usual untrusted warning you get for self-signed certs.
Which certificate it is shouldn't have any bearing on what route the network chooses for packets between hosts though. You ought to be able to prove that using traceroute or similar.

Hi Chris

The infrastructure team have found that they have the same problem from a local server. The sites that have no problem are running Windows 2008 R2 and get the message "There is a problem with this site's security certificate", which is easily bypassed. The site with the problem is on Windows Server 2003 R2 and get no such message, so the infrastructure team have asked me to confirm that "..the SSL configuration and CypherSuite configured for Weblogic will support the IE cipher strength of 128-bit". I have no idea what that means so will have to chase it up.

The server that I am trying to connect from is in the Middle East, while the OMS site is in Australia. I was informed last week that the connection was being blocked at another site they have in South America, which I would think would make the above issue of the certificate irrelevant. It does make the multiple NIC theory sound feasible to me.

Thanks and regards

Before commencing I checked that I could make a secure connection to the Cloud Control console via https from this server, but I cannot, getting "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". My client's system/network admin people have investigated and are now asking me - and want me to ask Oracle - why the https connection is going via the internet instead of their intranet. This is not my area of knowledge but I would assume that this wouldhave nothing to do with Oracle but rather be a firewall or security issue.
